with the new patch, do ALL systems do a slow trace now?

I keep getting caught by slow traces, and when I see who caught me, it was some gimpy little Internal Services Machine ... please let me know

Internal Services Machines have always done a passive ("slow") trace. Very (very) few system have ever not done a trace. Any system that does an active ("fast") trace will also do a passive trace. The key has always been to delete your logs after every hack. :)

But I do delete my logs, I have internic as my first or second jump, and clear it out after each mission. I don't even lose admin password at the server I hack. I also make sure I clear the logs of the servers I am attacking. Did the difficulty get amp'd?

To Err is Human ... to Moo Bovine.

If you really delete the logs at InterNIC, don't delete the connection established log, because a disconnection log without a connection log seems suspicious.

what if delete both the disconnection and the connection logs?

Well if you connect to a server, delete the log of you connecting, and then log off, it puts a log off log there, right? And you can't delete it because you're no longer connected to the server. So leave one connect-to log at the top of your list and you'll be fine.

Actually, making the logs look neat like that has no effect on the in-game mechanics.

Don't forget to delete the "From Password accepted" log. Too often, people don't delete those and wind up busted because the game's AI considers it suspicious.

I'm not sure that it does. Without looking at the code (and I can't be bothered now) I'm not sure that those logs matter. As long as you deleted the connection from routed to ... log (ALWAYS using log deleter v.4 otherwise, it can be undeleted), you should be ok.

And, by the way, why was this dead thread bumped?

This forum being so slow, this was like the 4th or 5th post down, so it wasn't really bumped as such. :)
